In all aspects of today's OSUT
training, the critical MP aspects of force protection are emphasized.
Significantly, the published outcomes for a graduate of Infantry OSUT include not only the tangible tactical and technical tasks, but also intangible outcomes that describe the values and behaviors that a graduate should display (see Figure 2).
Land navigation: The OSUT POl provides for 27 hours of training on land navigation and culminates with a standard 3/5 point GO/NO GO training requirement.
All MOS 21B OSUT
soldiers also receive 3 days of urban breaching
Basic Rifle Marksmanship for Initial Military Training is standardized across BCT, OSUT
, and BOLC.
IET trainers completely redesigned the BCT and Infantry OSUT
POIs based upon the IET principles discussed above and what they thought Soldiers should be able to do to meet the challenges of the operational environment upon graduation.
Previous assignments include PERSCOM, DA Secretariat Recorder, Alexandria, Virginia; and Commander, A Company, 35th Engineer Battalion, OSUT
, Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.
The cadre educated their peers, and the BCT and OSUT
Soldiers are now making far more appropriate decisions during their STXs and during their final FTX.
The presentation of troops in the Infantry OSUT
Company was correct, disciplined and a real impact to parents, friends, and family.
The likely scenario for future combat will include quick, accurate reflexive reactions against a close, well-camouflaged, asymmetric threat, and we are training OSUT
Soldiers in reflexive firing techniques.
The buddy-team soldiers go through OSUT
together and upon graduation, are assigned to the same unit.
Now we are taking this one step further by matching each initial entry soldier with a "Buddy" during OSUT
